Hanger of Desire


A hanger used to hold hundred dollar clothes

Clothes from the back of the rich and wealthy

Clothes which causes so much desire

Desire leading to a lost soul's refuge

One second of desire leading to a year in jail


A skinny iron hanger leading to two inch thick bars

As the hanger is behind jail cells, more desire is caused

Although this desire does not lead to more years

This desire leads to the death of a man

Then the punishment of another


This lost soul looking for refuge

His refuge is not a four bedroom home

A church of forgiveness, not heaven nor hell

This lost soul has now lost its hanger

And the next has found it


The future of this hanger is not known

Although this hanger destiny is left to the next man

The next lost soul searching for refuge

The next lost soul looking for sanctuary

Only finding what they should not hold
